Fun With Crafts

Goldfinch

I am not particularly artsy but sometimes I like to craft. Thus, I decided to make keepsakes for everyone for a family dinner we hosted earlier this year. I like working with felt because it doesn’t require hemming. I came up with my own designs as I went. It was fun!

The American goldfinch went to my mother-in-law because she feeds the birds and is happy when these finches show up in her backyard.

This unicorn was for my oldest niece who is nine. What young girl doesn’t like unicorns? This ornament was a big hit with her.

A Kitty ornament went to my youngest niece. Little girls and kitties seem like a natural match to me.

I crafted a heart with a corgi on it for my daughter. She and her boyfriend have two corgis. The heart I made for my brother and his wife had roses made from ribbons. These both were very nice but I forgot to take pictures of them before I gave them out. Oh, well.

Bluebird

And lastly, I sewed a heart ornament for my husband and me to keep. It has a bluebird since we enjoy watching the bluebird families that live in the houses my husband built.

Our kitten Jasper was assisting me in taking this last photo today. This was my fifth try and he “helped” me every time. I decided to just go with it and use this picture. It sums up life with kittens.

SanctuaryAcresShop on Etsy is Open!


It’s here! My Etsy Shop is finally live. You can find it at this link https://www.etsy.com/shop/SanctuaryAcresShop?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=762811855.

I have a number of felt ornaments as well as the felt pin featured above. Some are holiday themed and others are of a more general nature. I plan to add other types of items as I spend more time working on the site.

There are also Dog Biscuits! This batch is Pumpkin and Ancient Grain with a whole wheat base. I will be adding other flavors soon.

This Etsy site has been on my list of things to do for a long time. Retirement was the impetus I needed to get things rolling. If you find the listing to be worthy, I would appreciate it if you would share this post with your friends. There are many small businesses out there so every share helps.
